O, how the tables have turned

On the road somewhere AIDS Lifecycle 2009

Me: I can’t believe we are riding  in this rain. This is insane. I am freezing.

Johanna: It’s not that bad. Man up.

Random Swedish guy we befriended: what are you talking about? This weather is awesome! This is the kind of weather it should be! YAY RAIN!!!

Me: (aside) Crazy swede.

FAST FORWARD to Berkeley, October, 2010

Friend: Ugh. I hate the rain. This sucks.

Me: What are you talking about? This weather is awesome! This is the kind of weather it should be! YAY RAIN!!! Man up.

Friend: You are insane.

    O, how full of awesomeness you are! Reading your blog always makes me smile.

    I’m hoping to go to Sweden sometime within the next couple of months. Some man-upping will be required by my part, but I’m jazzed. And even if it’s a short trip, maybe it will help me appreciate Berkeley weather a bit more. 🙂

    Thanks Lisa! O my, that would be awesome if you went to Sweden..although, yes, it will be cold 🙂 And probably mostly gray. Hope all is well in France!
